Page fault in nonpaged area: How To Fix The ‘Page Fault in Non-Paged Area’ Windows BSOD

How To Fix The ‘Page Fault in Non-Paged Area’ Windows BSOD

As BSODs go, PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA is as close as Windows comes to saying “invalid memory reference.” To really understand what’s going on, one needs to understand paged memory, which divides addressable memory space up into a collection of 4K-sized memory pages. The OS can address a very large number of pages, where only some of those pages will actually be resident in RAM. 

In most cases, when a program or the OS references a specific memory page, if it’s not resident in RAM, the page manager throws a “page fault” (page not present) status. Ultimately, this means the requested page gets read from the page file. To make room for something new if room is needed, an old memory page (one that hasn’t been accessed recently) will be swapped out to make room for the new page as it gets swapped in.

Certain pages that the OS uses frequently are “locked-in” to RAM. That is, they do not participate in memory paging and should always be present and available when requested. Windows refers to this memory allocation as the “Non-paged pool” and it appears as such in Task Manager, as shown below.

 The non-paged pool on a PC with 32 GB of physical RAM is only 951 MB. Windows allocates only the barest minimum to this collection of “locked-in” memory pages. (Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

The PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA BSOD signals a condition where the OS has requested a locked-in page, and gets a page fault instead. The reason why Microsoft handles this as a stop code and generates a BSOD is because this error is not supposed to occur, and it directly affects the operating system (only highly privileged, important memory pages get allocated into the non-paged pool). 

What Causes PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA? 

As described in the Microsoft Docs page for PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA, this particular stop code may follow after installation of what it calls “a faulty system service or faulty driver code.” By and large, system services come from Microsoft as part of OS releases, upgrades or updates. If they’re at fault, you’ll figure this out quickly because Microsoft will include this possibility in its “Known Issues” lists for such things. Likewise, there will be plenty of online traffic to report, document, and exclaim about such problems. 

While bad Windows updates do happen from time to time, the PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA code is far more likely to come from a faulty driver. To see if the problem is caused by a driver, note the file listed on the BSOD (ex: nvlddmkm.sys) and consider whether you’ve recently updated a driver or installed a new device.

How to Fix PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA BSODs 

When it comes to faulty system services, the best approach is to uninstall (or roll back from) the upgrade or update that caused the problem. If it came from a clean Windows install, it’s time to do another one, using a different (and known to be good and working) OS version instead. See our article on how to do a 30-minute repair reinstall of Windows.

If the problem comes from a driver, first check the device manufacturer’s website for a newer version of the driver. If so, download and install it. If not, try rolling back to a prior version. To roll back a driver:

1. Launch Device Manager. You can get there from the Windows + X menu.

2. Right click on the device in question and select properties.

3. Click the Roll Back Driver button.

However, many devices won’t have the Roll Back Driver button enabled and, even then, it will only take you back one version. Otherwise, you’ll need to hunt for an older driver through the manufacturer’s site (or some reputable third-party source, such as the excellent French Station Drivers website). 

Look for Disk Problems 

Disk errors or specific problems with system files can also cause the PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA BSOD. In order to rule out or fix these issues:

1. Open a command prompt as administrator. You can get there by searching for cmd, right clicking and selecting Run as administrator.  

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

2. Enter DISM /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth to find and replace any damaged OS components. 

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

3. Enter SFC /scannow to check for damaged system files. 

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

These aren’t the most likely cause of a Page Fault in NonPaged Area BSOD, but they are quick and easy steps you can take which may solve the problem. 

Memory Could Be a Cause of PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA BSODs 

Other potential causes for the PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA BSOD include memory problems. This might mean issues with RAM, L1 or L2 cache on the CPU chip itself, or even video RAM on a graphics card. Finding such issues requires a process of elimination. It’s easiest to check RAM, and more difficult to check CPU cache and video RAM. 

The free, open-source Memtest86+ utility is a good tool for checking PC RAM. I keep a bootable version of MemTest86+ on my Ventoy repair flash drive (it’s named mt531b. iso, to reflect the most current MemTest86+ version). Using the tool generally requires an overnight run, so I boot to the MemTest image just before I go to bed, and let it run all night so I can see what it’s doing (and finding). 

Malaysian logger Raymond.cc offers an interesting list of 6 free programs to check your video card memory for errors. I’m not aware of any tools that check CPU cache per se, though I did find an interesting StackOverflow item that uses DotNet libraries to come close.

If memory problems are indeed present and none of the other techniques I’ve described lead to solutions, keep your eyes peeled for related stop codes. These can help point you more directly at potential causes and fixes:

  • SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
  • KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
  • MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
  • IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

How to Fix Windows 10 with a 30-Minute Repair Install

(Image credit: Shutterstock)

Whether you’re trying to fix a BSOD such as a IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or a CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED error, serious Windows 10  troubleshooting is like plunging down the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland. At some point you may feel like you’ve taken on more than you can handle, you’re in a strange place, and the ultimate outcome is far from certain. That’s why I always keep track of the time I spend on troubleshooting, with a definite exit strategy in mind. Should the weeds get too thick to hack through, or the circumstances become too vexing or dire, that exit strategy will work to solve most problems that require troubleshooting in the first place.

For me – and I would suggest for most readers – the natural time limit on Windows troubleshooting is half an hour (30 minutes). Why? That’s about how long it takes to perform a special-purpose operating system repair that shoots most forms of Windows trouble. Especially if your problem (or problems) are software-related, this repair is quite likely to fix them. Simply put, it replaces ALL of the OS files on a Windows 10 PC but leaves other files, installed applications, and most (but not all) settings and preferences alone.

The In-Place Upgrade Repair Install 

It’s little-known and underappreciated, but one can install the same version of a Windows 10 OS onto an existing copy. This uses the Windows installation files in ISO format.

Creating a Windows Install ISO 

There are several ways to get a Windows 10 install ISO, but the easiest comes directly from Microsoft’s download page.

1. Download the Media Creation Tool by navigating to Microsoft’s Download Windows 10 page and clicking the button labeled “Download tool now” under the “Create Windows 10 installation media” heading.  

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

The name of the software tool is MediaCreationTool.exe. I usually rename it to identify the version of Windows 10 it downloads. At any given point in time, the MCT grabs whatever version of Windows 10 is most current – right now that’s 21h2. So I renamed that file MediaCreationTool21h2.exe.

2. Launch the Media Creation Tool. It shows up in a window labeled “Windows 10 Setup” and makes you wait while it gets “a few things ready.”

3. Approve the license terms when prompted. 

4. Select “Create installation media…”

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

5. Select the language, Edition and Architecture (ex: 64-bit) when prompted. 

6. Select ISO file when asked to choose the media you want to output to. 

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

By default this creates a file named Windows.iso; as before I name mine Windows21h2.iso so I can identify the version later on. This process takes a while. On my 2016 vintage i7 Skylake PC, it takes around 5 minutes to download and process the necessary data, and leave the ISO file behind in its designated storage location. After the download is complete, the MCT verifies the file structure (this is included in the 5-minute timeframe). When it’s complete it will show you the full path where the new ISO file now resides, like this:

7. Click the “Finish” button and MCT will tidy up after itself and then close (this happens in less than 5 seconds on my PC: YMMV).

Performing the In-place Repair Upgrade Install 

Established best practice dictates a bit of preparation before you start this operation. You’ll want to save any work, and close all open applications. If you have external storage devices attached to your PC, you’ll want to “safely remove them” so they can’t impact or interfere with repairs. 

If your issues are related to the boot/system drive, many experts think it’s useful to disconnect or dismount all other internal storage devices as well. I’ve never bothered with this when performing this repair on most of my PCs, and it hasn’t affected the outcome as far as I can tell. But if you are dealing with boot or start-up issues, this could be helpful. You’ll need your mouse, monitor and keyboard, though, so please leave all of them attached as usual.

One more thing: before making major system changes (and this maneuver DEFINITELY counts as such) it’s always a good idea to make an image backup of your PC if you don’t have a recent copy. I make one every morning at 9:00 AM as a scheduled task in Macrium Reflect so I don’t usually do this (unless it’s late in the day). Be sure to have a bootable recovery disk handy that can restore your PC in case the OS drive goes south, and know how to use it for that purpose

1. Navigate to your newly-created ISO file in Explorer.

2. Right-click the file and select “Mount” from the resulting pop-up menu (if Mount does not appear, click Open, and then open with File Explorer). Either way, a new virtual device labeled “DVD drive” will appear in Explorer. It should look something like the item labeled DVD Drive (P:) ESD-ISO shown next. 

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

After all this effort, starting the in-place upgrade repair install is dead simple. 

3. Double-click the setup-exe file on the mounted ISO.

This starts an upgrade to its local version of Windows. It will systematically replace every operating system file (and move the previous version to a Windows.old folder to which you can roll back if you like (Start 🡪 Settings 🡪 Update & Security 🡪 Recovery 🡪 Go back to the previous version of Windows 10/click the “Get Started” button).

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

Notice that my PC was last updated more than 10 days ago, so it doesn’t have that option (but then, I have this morning’s image backup and my Rescue Media handy).

Once you fire off setup.exe, it’s just like all other Windows upgrades. It starts off with downloading and manipulating a set of files for the new OS version, while the old OS keeps running. Then you’re asked to reboot your PC, after which a Windows Preinstallation Environment, aka WinPE, takes over to handle the rest of the install process, during which at least two more reboots will occur. Eventually, you’ll have a repaired OS at your disposal. Hopefully, the trouble you’ve been trying to shoot will also be cleared away, as if by magic.

What Can’t an In-Place Upgrade Repair Install Fix? 

This process takes such a short amount of time to complete, I’ve made it a part of my standard troubleshooting sequence. Unless I’m troubleshooting hardware or device driver issues – which this repair may not fix if it’s driver related, and can’t fix if it’s hardware-caused – I’ve found this repair to be as close to a “silver bullet” for handling pesky or complex Windows problems as it ever gets. And because it doesn’t take too long to give it a try, you won’t be that far behind the curve even if it doesn’t work. My own experience is that this repair handles 90-plus percent of the problems I run into and can’t fix in less than half an hour. Hopefully, your experience will be the same!

How to Fix IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Errors in Windows 10

(Image credit: Shutterstock)

One of the more common Windows stop codes is named IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. This cryptic-seeming name refers to an Interruption ReQuest Line (IRQL) that PCs use to signal events in urgent need of attention or response. In fact, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (sometimes referred to as just “IRQL”) is typically a memory related error that occurs if a system process or a device driver seeks access to a memory address for which it lacks valid access rights. Memory allocations for processes usually have an upper bound address, so the “NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL” part refers to an attempt to access an address outside (greater than) that boundary value.

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

What Happens When the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Error Occurs?

This error triggers an OS stop, which causes Windows to crash and triggers what’s often called a Blue Screen of Death, or BSOD. Windows displays a stop screen, while it’s collecting forensics data in the background. When that collection phase ends, the PC reboots by default (unless you’ve changed settings to instruct it to shut down instead). This BSOD is shown as the lead-in graphic for this story.

Most Common Causes for the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Error

When this error is triggered, there are numerous potential causes that may be worth investigating. Your best bet is to think about what on your PC has changed recently. The list of potential causes includes:

●      Corrupt system files: These are best addressed using the DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth command (run at an administrative command prompt or in an administrative PowerShell session). If this command finds anything to report, run DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth to clean things up. Next, run the system file checker until it reports nothing found or fixed (this sometimes takes 2 or 3 iterations) by typing SFC /SCANNOW. If it works, this will often fix the IRQL error as well.

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

●      Incompatible device drivers: if you’ve recently updated a driver, try rolling it back to the prior version. You can do this by opening the Device Manager (available when you hit Win + X), right clicking on the device in question, selecting Properties, navigating to the Driver tab and hitting the “Roll Back Driver” button. If the button is grayed out, you may have to uninstall the current driver and install the previous version manually.

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

●      Faulty hardware: if a device is malfunctioning or failing, you’ll usually see error reports in Reliability Monitor, which you run by typing perfmon /rel in the Run box, at a command prompt, or in PowerShell.

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

The best thing you can do with a failing or malfunctioning device is to disconnect it from the PC (though for important devices – e.g. mouse, keyboard, disk drive, and so forth – you may also have to replace the ailing device with a known good working instance).

●      Damaged or incomplete software installation: If you’ve recently installed an application or update, look in Reliability Monitor for installation failure messages (for updates and upgrades these will also appear in Update History). In such cases, your best bet is to uninstall the problem software and see if the problem goes away.

Graphics Drivers Often Cause IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Errors

I’ve seen the IRQL error on more than half-a-dozen occasions in my 6-plus years of working with Windows 10. In all but one instance, the cause was a buggy Nvidia GeForce graphics driver. In all of those cases, by rolling back to the preceding version, I stopped the IRQL error dead in its tracks.

That’s why I don’t remove duplicate Nvidia graphics drivers from my Windows PCs until the new one has run without problems for a couple of weeks. The excellent GitHub project DriverStore Explorer is great at performing such cleanups, when the time comes. Don’t be too quick to make such cleanups, and you’ll leave the rollback option open to yourself, should you need it.

Try a Clean Boot

If the preceding suggested repairs provide no relief from IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL errors, a Windows 10 clean boot should be your next step. A clean boot starts Windows 10 with the barest minimum set of drivers and startup programs. It seeks to eliminate possible causes of trouble that have been added to the startup environment over time.

 To perform a clean boot:

1. Launch the msconfig System Configuration utility. You can get there by hitting WinKey+R and entering “msconfig.”

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

2. Uncheck Load startup items in the General Tab under the Selective Startup setting. This disables all startup items currently present on this PC.

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

3. Navigate to the Services tab, click the Hide all Microsoft services checkbox at lower left, then click “Disable all.” This disables all non-Microsoft (mostly OS) services on this PC. You can now click OK to close the window.

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

Your PC is now set up for a clean boot, so you’ll want to restart to try further troubleshooting. This may allow you to replace or reinstall otherwise problematic or reluctant drivers, applications, updates and so forth. When you’ve finished your troubleshooting, you must then go back and reverse all changes.

If you’ve already disabled some startup items in Task Manager, for example, you might want to make a screenshot to capture the list of disabled items before you disable those still active. That way you’ll know what to leave alone when you put things back the way they used to be.

Troubleshooting non-Windows Services

If your troubleshooting leads you to suspect non-Windows services are involved in the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error, you need to conduct a process of elimination to identify the culprit (or culprits). This means turning on 3rd-party services in groups. Shawn Brink at Tenforums.com recommends a binary search technique in his clean boot tutorial. This works pretty well, and helps you zero in quickly. I sometimes do things in groups by vendor (Chrome, Nvidia, Intel, and so forth) and that seems to work well, too.

See Who Else is GETTING IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Errors

If you visit TenForums.com, BleepingComputer.com Answers.Microsoft.com or the Tom’s Hardware forums and search for IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and you will see how often the error has been reported lately as there may be a new driver or update wreaking havoc. You will also get some very good ideas on how others have approached diagnosis of the underlying cause, and what fixes they’ve applied.

It’s especially helpful to read through fixes that claim success because these might work for you, too. On the other hand, unsuccessful fixes can be informative, too, because they tell you which repairs to try later rather than sooner (or not at all).

How to Fix a SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION BSOD in Windows

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

If you get a Blue Screen of Death with the stop code SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, there could be many causes, though a bad driver is always a likely culprit. The usual bug check code that goes with a SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION is 0x3B. Interestingly, the numeric code has numerous (7!) associations in the Microsoft Error Lookup Tool , so this one is best researched using the text-based stop code by itself, or in combination with the numeric code. Microsoft’s bug check page for this error provides this explanation for its cause: “This indicates that an exception happened while executing a routine that transitions from non-privileged code to privileged code.” 

File System Fix For SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

Microsoft also notes on the bug check page for SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION  that “If a driver that is responsible for the error can be identified, its name is printed on the blue screen…” Indeed, I’ve personally experienced this error with the Windows 10 NTFS file system driver (Ntfs.sys) identified as the culprit. This identification is a mixed blessing, because it does tell you some kind of file system error occurred. That said, one cannot and should not replace OS-level drivers for Windows as one might do for a device driver of some kind.

Such repairs are best left to the DISM and SFC commands. Thus, my first response to the SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION  stop code after a reboot would be to run these commands in an administrative Command Prompt or PowerShell session:

Dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

SFC /scannow

The first command will find and replace any corrupted or missing files in the Windows Component Store (usually C:\Windows\WinSxS). The second command will examine all Windows system files (SFC stands for System File Checker, in fact) and replace any damaged or missing files it identifies. The afore-cited DISM command usually takes 3-5 minutes to complete, and the SFC command can take longer (especially if it makes any repairs). If SFC finds and fixes errors, repeat that same command until you get a clean bill of health in its final follow-up:

If SFC finds and fixes corrupt files, keep running the command until it reports “…did not find any integrity violations.” Here, it took only two tries to achieve that state.  (Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

Using the Driver Verifier Tool to Fix SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

Windows 10 and Windows 11 both include a built-in driver verification tool named verifier.exe. It resides in the C:\Windows\System32 folder (where Windows keeps many of its admin and repair tools). Drivers are indeed often involved in the SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION error because they belong to the class of Windows code elements allowed to access protected system code (along with OS components themselves, of course). Pretty much any device driver can provoke this error, so it’s not uncommon to see it pop up when you install new hardware, or plug in some kind of removable storage device (usually through a USB or Thunderbolt port).

If the previous system repairs (DISM and SFC) don’t dispel the SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION BSOD, the Windows Driver Verifier may be able to help you identify the culprit that’s causing this BSOD to occur. This tool comes with a warning: be sure to create a current image backup for your PC before using it, because the verifier checks all device drivers and intentionally causes a BSOD when it finds a driver that cannot be verified or is corrupt or damaged. 

The information you seek should show up in the crash dump that gets written when a BSOD occurs. That crash dump will either occupy a file named memory.dmp or minidump.dmp. The former resides in the Windows root, usually C:\Windows. The latter resides in C:\Windows\Minidump. I wholeheartedly recommend using Nir Sofer’s BlueScreenView tool for viewing and inspecting crash dumps. It will happily target either of those crash dump files, and tell you what’s what. 

Turning Driver Verifier On

1. Enter “verifier.exe” at an administrative Command Prompt or PowerShell This will open the Driver Verifier Manager program.

2. Click Next and leave the default setting, “Create standard settings” in place.

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

3.  Select “Automatically select all drivers installed on this computer.” If you’d rather focus on a list of drivers by name, click “Select driver names from a list” instead. Either way, click Next to continue.

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

Unless you want to let your computer take hours testing possibly hundreds of drivers, I have some tips for narrowing this list down and picking suspect drivers from the list.

Tip A: Use DriverStore Explorer to Get Driver Names and Info

A free GitHub project called DriverStore Explorer offers a handy focused software tool for inspecting and managing Windows drivers. I used it on my test system to confirm it had over 200 drivers present, and to clean up enough of the old ones to bring that count down to a “mere” 195. This shows that selecting all drivers can involve a huge number of checks and take a great deal of time. Thus, I tend to concentrate on drivers by name using DriverStore Explorer and focus on drivers by category (e.g. Network adapters, Human Interface Devices, Display adapters, and so forth).

Tip B: Restrict Driver Checks to Suspect Categories or Items, When Possible

Let’s say I just switched from the Lenovo OEM video driver to the Intel DCH video driver on my test PC, after which the SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION error started up. DriverStore Explorer tells me the name of that driver is iigd_dch.inf, so that’s the one I want to check for a close match in Driver Verifier Manager’s driver list. Usually igd is shorthand for “Intel graphics driver,” so I choose the item named igdkm64.sys.

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

4. Click Finish to proceed through your checks. Next you’ll see a warning from Driver Verifier Manager that you must restart your PC to start running its driver checks.

5. Click OK,  restart your PC, and you’re on your way! When the system reboots, it may take a little longer to get through the boot-up sequence, as Driver Verifier Manager does its thing. Be patient. As Driver Verifier Manager finds unsigned or suspect drivers it will cause BSODs.

6. Record any bluescreen messages that pop up (it’s handy to snap them with a smartphone), so you can investigate later.

Any BSODs will need subsequent investigation, and should prompt certain actions. In most cases, replacing or upgrading drivers identified in crash dumps after using Driver Verifier will set your system back to rights.

If you find yourself stuck in a boot loop (repeated BSODs that Driver Verifier is causing), you’ll need to boot into Safe Mode (insert link). Then you can access Driver Verifier (type verifier into the Command Prompt or PowerShell). Once you’re into the Driver Verifier Manager UI, choose “Delete existing settings,” then click Finish. After your next restart, your self-induced BSODs will stop.

(Image credit: Tom’s Hardware)

Beyond the Driver Verifier, It’s Last-Ditch Repairs

If you still can’t get out of the BSOD loop, you may need to take more drastic measures. Restore the OS image you created as a precautionary backup, and you will be back where you started. On the other hand, you could try a 30-minute repair reinstall of WIndows or, if that’s not enough, choose to reset Windows entirely which is the same as a clean install. The last two are obviously maneuvers of last resort.

8 Powerful Methods to Fix PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA Error

Have you ever experienced PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA error? Do you know why it occurs and how to solve PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA? Read this article, you can figure out the reasons for the problem and then solve it.

PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA is also called PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA error, and it has an error code 0x00000050, which can be called bug check 0x50. It will cause BSOD, which is pretty annoying.

The Reasons for PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA

What is NONPAGED AREA? As an area of memory, NONPAGED AREA concludes data that is very important to the operation of the system. The data is stored in RAM all the time because NONPAGED AREA always needs the data, and the data don’t need to exchange between RAM and page file.

Tip: If you lose important data due to PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA error, then you can use MiniTool software to recover lost data.

PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA is one of the Blue Screen of Death errors, and the occurrence of this error may be caused by several reasons. I will list some of the reasons below.

  1. The nonpaged area contains important data for system operation. This error occurs when Windows cannot find the data that should be stored in the nonpaged area.
  2. PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA error also occurs when the wrong system service or the wrong driver code is installed on the computer.
  3. 0x00000050 error can occur if there are faulty hardware or hardware problems on the computer (RAM is corrupted or there is a damaged sector on the hard disk).
  4. Antivirus software and corrupted NTFS volumes can also cause this error to occur.

After knowing what might cause PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA error, do you know how to fix it?

How to Fix PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA Error?

When PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA error occurs, the first thing you need to do is to restart your PC and log in, then you may find that everything goes well and this error does not occur again.

However, if the BSOD occurs again and again, then you should try the following methods.

In order to avoid the PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA error occurs while fixing this problem, you’d better enter safe mode in advance.

worked on

client PC (client PC) , and I had to reboot it due to new application install (application install) . However, after rebooting, the computer would blue screen and display error PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA error) .

At first I thought it had something to do with the application I just installed, so I decided to restart the computer in Safe Mode (Safe Mode) and uninstall the application. It seems to have worked because BSOD disappeared (BSOD) , but only for a short time.

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

STOP: 0x00000050 (0xCD3DD628, 0x00000001, 0x804EFC9A, 0x00000000) (STOP: 0x00000050 (0xCD3DD628, 0x00000001, 0x804EFC9A, 0x00000000))

After a few more restarts, the message reappeared! After doing some research, I found that this error message (error message) basically means that Windows is trying to find a piece of data in memory and it cannot be found.

According to Microsoft , this error can be caused by Faulty hardware (faulty hardware) ( RAM (RAM) , hard drive), antivirus software, damaged NTFS volume (NTFS volume) or bad drivers. In this article, I will walk you through various solutions, some easier than others.

Please note that bad memory ( RAM (RAM) ) is the main cause of this error, but I don’t mention (t mention) this is much further just because it may require opening your computer and adding/removing RAM (RAM) . I guess most people would like to avoid this, so I listed the simpler solutions first for in case one (case one) of them worked.

Method 1 — Setting up the swap file

You can try a simple swap file trick first, which fixes the problem for some people. If the problem is not related to the hardware, then it is page file solution (page file solution) might just work.

First open control panel (Control Panel) and click System (System) . You can also right-click « Computer (Computer) » or «This PC (This PC) » and select «Properties (Properties) «.

Now click on the link « Advanced System Settings (Advanced System Settings) on the left.

In section «Performance (Performance) » press the button « Settings (Settings) «.

Click the Advanced (Advanced) tab, and then click the Change (Change) button under the Virtual Memory heading. (Virtual Memory)

Finally, we have achieved what we had to achieve. Uncheck Automatically manage paging file size for all drives and select No paging file (No paging file) .

Click OK (Click OK) several times to exit all dialog boxes, and then restart your computer. After you return, follow exactly the steps shown above again, but this times select Size, (time select) system managed, ( System managed size) and check the box Automatically manage paging file size for all drives ( Automatically manage paging file size for all drives) .

As I said before, this works for some people but not for others, so your mileage will vary. If you are still experiencing blue screens, keep reading.

Method 2 — check disk

This error can also occur if your hard drive is failing or has disk errors. One quick way to check your hard drive is to run the chkdsk command in Windows.

To do this, press Start and (Start and type) enter cmd . Right-click the top result and select Run as administrator (Run as Administrator) .

At the command prompt, enter the following command:

 chkdsk /f 

If you receive a message that the disk is locked and you want to schedule chkdsk to run the next time you restart, enter Y to confirm. Restart your computer and allow chkdsk to run, which can take a long time in Windows 7 and earlier. The process is much faster in Windows 8 and Windows 10 .

Method 3 — Bad driver

If you recently updated a driver for the hardware on your computer, it could be a faulty driver (faulty driver) causing the blue screen problem. Drivers are required for Windows , but sometimes the latest drivers can cause more problems than they fix.

If you are using a third party to automatically update your PC drivers, it is probably a good idea to set up your software so that you can preview each driver that will be updated in advance.

In any case, you can try to solve this problem by clicking Start and typing (Start and typing) Device Manager (Device Manager) . Right-click on the device you updated the driver for and select Roll Back Driver (Roll Back Driver) . You can also select « Properties (Properties) » and then go to the tab « Driver» and click the button « (Driver) Roll Back Driver» (Roll Back Driver) .

If the button is disabled or you don’t see the option when you right-click on a device, this means that the current driver is the only driver ever installed for that device.

The last thing you can try is to click the « Uninstall (Uninstall) » button and restart your computer. Windows will automatically try to install the driver for the hardware on reboot Windows . If that doesn’t work, try the next method.

Method 4 — Last Known Good Configuration

In some cases, the problem is not only with the driver and requires the use of the « Last Known Good Configuration (Last Known Good Configuration) » feature in Windows.

This basically returns the old version of the whole Windows registry (Windows registry) which worked. Windows 7 and earlier, you just need to press the key F8 (F8 key) to open the Advanced Options screen (Advanced Options) at boot.

In Windows 8 and Windows 10 see my post on how to load the System Recovery Options screen because (System Recovery Options) the F8 key (F8 key) no longer works in these two operating systems.

In addition to trying «Last known (Known) » you should also try System Restore (System Restore) if «Last known (Known didn) » did not work. Read my previous post on how to perform system restore (system restore) .

Method 5 — Check RAM

As mentioned above, RAM (RAM) is usually the main culprit for this error. This usually means that RAM (RAM) has failed. Most computers have multiple (RAM) RAM chips installed, and sometimes you can fix the problem simply by removing the faulty chip and leaving the rest.

However, before you do that, read my post on how to check for bad memory on your computer. If you think the problem is memory related, visit the web — website (s website) of your computer manufacturer (computer manufacturer) and download the guide to update RAM (RAM) on your computer.

The manual usually tells you how to open the computer and where to find RAM (RAM) . If you have several (RAM chip) RAM chips, remove one of them and turn on the computer. If blue screen (blue screen) is gone, so you got a bad one. If not, switch and try again.

If you have only one RAM chip (RAM chip) , you need to purchase another RAM chip, (RAM chip) as you will not be able to start the computer without at least one RAM chips (RAM chip) .

Method 6 — Antivirus software

In some rare cases, your antivirus software may cause blue screen errors. I recommend completely uninstalling your antivirus program and then restarting your computer.

The chance of any software causing this error is pretty low, but it’s worth a try at this point, especially if you’re using an antivirus product from a lesser-known company.

Conclusion

If none of these methods fixed your problem, you may have a more serious problem with your computer. At this point, it’s probably a good idea to take your machine to a professional to have other hardware checked, such as the motherboard, processor (CPU) etc. If you have any questions feel free to comment. Enjoy!

To do this, click Start and type CMD , Right click on the top result and select Run as administrator ,

At the command prompt, type the following command:

 chkdsk /f 

If you get a message that the drive is locked and if you want to schedule a chkdsk on the next reboot, enter Y yes. Go ahead and restart your computer and allow chkdsk to run, which can take a long time on Windows 7 and earlier. The process is much faster in Windows 8 and Windows 10.

Method 3 — Bad Driver

If you recently updated a driver for some hardware on your computer, it could be a faulty driver causing the blue screen issue. Drivers are essential for Windows, but sometimes the latest drivers can cause more problems than they fix.

If you are using third-party software to automatically update your PC drivers, you may want to set the software so that you can preview each driver that will be updated.

Anyway, you can try to solve this problem by clicking Start and typing Device Manager . Right click on the device you updated the driver for and select Roll Back Driver . You can also select Properties and then go to Driver tab and click Roll Back Driver button.

If the button is disabled or you don’t see the option when you right-click on a device, this means that the current driver is the only driver ever installed for that device.

The last thing you can try is to click Remove and restart your computer. Windows will automatically try to install the driver for the hardware when you restart Windows. If that didn’t work, try the next method.

Method 4 — Last Known Configuration

In some cases, the problem is more than just a driver and will require the use of the Last Known Good Configuration feature in Windows.

This basically reverts the old version of the entire Windows Registry that was working. In Windows 7 and earlier, just press the F8 key to bring up the Advanced Settings screen at startup.

On Windows 8 and Windows 10 see my post on how to download System Recovery Settings screen because the F8 key no longer works on these two operating systems.

In addition to trying the last known one, you should also try to restore the system if the last known one did not work. Check out my previous post on how to perform a system restore.

Method 5 — Check RAM

As mentioned above, RAM is usually the main culprit for this error. This usually means that the RAM has failed. Most computers will have multiple RAM chips installed and you can fix the problem simply by removing the faulty chip and leaving the rest.

Before doing this, please read my post on how to check for bad memory on your PC. If you think there is a memory issue, visit your computer manufacturer’s website and download a guide to upgrade the RAM on your computer.

The manual usually tells you how to open your computer and where to find RAM. If you have more than one RAM chip, remove one of them and turn on the computer. If the blue screen disappears, then you took out a bad one. If not, switch and try again.

If you only have one RAM chip, you will need to purchase another RAM chip because you cannot start your computer without at least one RAM chip.

Method 6 — Antivirus software

In some rare cases, your antivirus software may cause blue screen errors. I recommend completely uninstalling your antivirus program and restarting your computer.

It’s very unlikely that any software will cause this error, but it’s worth a try at this point, especially if you’re using an antivirus product from a lesser-known company.

Output

If none of these methods fixed your problem, you may have a more serious problem with your computer. At this point, it’s probably a good idea to take your machine to a professional to have other hardware checked, such as the motherboard, processor, etc. If you have any questions, feel free to comment.

8 Powerful Methods to Fix Page Fault Nonpaged Area Error

Summary :

Have you ever encountered a PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA error? Do you know why this happens and how to resolve the PAGE ERROR IN THE UNINFECTED AREA? Read this article, you will be able to find out the causes of the problem and then solve it.

Quick Navigation:

PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA is also called PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA error and has error code 0x00000050 which can be called error checking 0x50. This will cause a BSOD, which is quite annoying.

Unoccupied area page fault causes

What is UNINFECTED ZONE? As a memory area, NONPAGED AREA contains data that is very important for the operation of the system. Data is permanently stored in RAM because the NONLOAD AREA always needs data, and there is no need to exchange data between RAM and the page file.

Tip: If you lose important data due to PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA error, you can use the MiniTool software to recover the lost data.

PAGE ERROR IN NON-INFECTED AREA is one of the blue screen of death errors, and the occurrence of this error can be caused by several reasons. Below I list some of the reasons.

  1. The nonpaged area contains critical data for system operation. This error occurs when Windows cannot find the data that should be stored in the nonpaged area.
  2. The PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA error also occurs when an incorrect system service or incorrect driver code is installed on the computer.
  3. Error 0x00000050 can occur if there is faulty hardware or hardware problems on the computer (damaged RAM or bad sector on the hard drive).
  4. Antivirus software and corrupted NTFS volumes can also cause this error.

Knowing what can cause the PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA error, do you know how to fix it?

How to fix PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA error?

When a PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA error occurs, the first thing you need to do is restart your computer and log in, then you may find that everything is going well and this error does not occur anymore.

However, if the BSOD occurs again and again, you should try the following methods.

To avoid the PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA error when troubleshooting this problem, you’d better enter Safe Mode beforehand.

Method 1: check the RAM

The reason for the PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA error on the computer may be that the RAM chip is not connected properly, or the slot is dusty, or the RAM card is damaged, so I suggest you check the RAM to see can this error be resolved.

  1. Shut down the computer completely and remove the side panel.
  2. Remove the battery and disconnect all power cords.
  3. Remove the RAM chip and check for dust. If so, remove the dust. If not, replace it with new RAM.
  4. Reconnect the RAM card and restart the computer to see if the PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA error still appears on the computer.

If your computer has multiple RAM modules, you need to find out which one is not working. If you have checked your computer, but the error still occurs, you can try the next method.

Method 2: Disable antivirus applications

Antivirus software can also cause PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA Windows 10 error on your computer. If you have recently installed antivirus software, you need to disable Windows Defender or third party antivirus software in order to resolve this error.

Here’s a way to disable Windows Defender.

open Settings > click Updates and Security > click Windows Security > click Virus and threat protection > click Manage settings under V irus and threat protection settings > disable Real-time protection .

However, if disabling antivirus software does not work, you should try the next method.

Method 3: Update device drivers

PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA is highly likely to occur if the driver is outdated, or the driver on the computer is incompatible with the operating system, or the driver may be corrupted. So, to fix this problem, you can either update the driver or uninstall the device.

Then you just have to wait for the computer to detect problems for a certain period of time. After the search is completed, the computer will display the detected problem on the screen.

If no problem is found, try the next method.

Method 6: Check the disk

Sometimes a PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA error occurs due to an error on the disk, so you can use the Windows Snap-in tool to check and fix errors on the disk.

Now I will tell you how to do it.

Step 1: Type cmd in the search box next to Cortana, then right-click on the best match to select Run as administrator to continue.

Step 2: Press Enter after typing chkdsk C: / f / r . ( C is the letter of the drive where you store the operating system.)

Note: If there is a message that Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is being used by another process. Do you want to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts, then type and on the keyboard.

You then simply restart your computer to see if the PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA error is fixed.

Method 7: Run the Hardware Troubleshooter

Hardware errors can also cause a PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA error, so you might want to try running the troubleshooter to see if there is a problem with your hardware.

Here’s a way to run the Hardware Troubleshooter.

Step 1: press Settings from Start menu to continue.

Step 2: Click Update & Security on Settings page to continue.

One of the common cases of the blue screen of death (BSOD) is STOP 0x00000050 and the error message PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA appears in all current versions of the OS: Windows 10, 8.1 and 8, Windows 7 and earlier.

In this case, the text of the error message may contain information about the file (and if it does not, then you can see this information in a memory dump using the BlueScreenView or WhoCrashed programs, we will talk about them later), which caused it, among the most common options — win32k .sys, atikmdag.sys, hal.dll, ntoskrnl.exe, ntfs.sys, wdfilter.sys, applecharger.sys, tm.sys, tcpip.sys and others.

This manual contains the most common variants of this problem and possible ways to fix the error. Also below is a list of official Microsoft fixes for specific cases of the STOP 0x00000050 error.

The cause of BSOD PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (STOP 0x00000050, 0x50) usually has problems with driver files, faulty hardware (RAM, but not only, it can be peripheral devices), failures of Windows services, incorrect operation or incompatibility of programs ( often — antiviruses), as well as violation of the integrity of Windows components and errors of hard drives and SSDs. The essence of the problem is incorrect access to memory during system operation.

First steps to fix BSOD PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

The first thing to do when a blue screen of death appears with a STOP 0x00000050 error is to remember what actions preceded the error (provided that it does not appear when installing Windows on a computer).

Note: if such an error appeared on a computer or laptop once and does not manifest itself anymore (that is, the blue screen of death does not constantly pop up), then perhaps the best solution would be to do nothing.

There may be the following typical options (we will discuss some of them in more detail below)

These are not all options, but they may help the user remember what was done before the error occurred, and possibly promptly fix it without further instructions. And now let’s talk about what specific actions can be useful in different cases.

Specific variants of the error and how to solve them

Now about some fairly common options when the STOP 0x00000050 error appears and what can work in these situations.

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA blue screen on Windows 10 when starting or running uTorrent is a frequent occurrence lately. If uTorrent is set to autoload, then the error may appear when you start Windows 10. Usually, the reason is working with a firewall in a third-party antivirus. Possible solutions: try disabling the firewall, use BitTorrent as a torrent client.

Another nuance of Windows 10 that can cause the error in question is the enabled kernel isolation option. You can disable it by going to the Windows Defender Security Center (double-click on the defender icon in the notification area) — Device Security — Core Isolation Details — disable the memory integrity check option. If Windows 10 starts only in safe mode or the option does not change, then this method will not work, use the following method: run the command prompt as an administrator, and then enter the following command and restart the computer:

BSOD STOP 0x00000050 error indicating the AppleCharger. sys file — occurs on Gigabyte motherboards if proprietary On / Off Charge software was installed on an unsupported system. Just uninstall this program through the control panel.

If you encounter an error in Windows 7 and Windows 8 involving the files win32k.sys, hal.dll, ntfs.sys, ntoskrnl.exe, try the following first: disable the paging file and restart the computer. After that, for some time, check if the error manifests itself again. If not, try enabling the paging file again and reboot, the error may not appear again. Learn more about enabling and disabling: Windows paging file. Checking the hard drive for errors can also come in handy here.

tcpip.sys, tm.sys — the causes of the PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA error in Windows 10, 8 and Windows 7 with these files may be different, but there is one more likely option — a bridge between connections. Press the Win+R keys on your keyboard and type ncpa.cpl into the Run window. See if there are network bridges in the list of connections (see screenshot). Try removing it (assuming you know it’s not needed in your configuration). Also in this case, updating or rolling back the network card and Wi-Fi adapter drivers can help.

atikmdag.sys is one of the ATI Radeon driver files that can cause the described blue screen error. If the error appears after the computer wakes up from sleep, try disabling Windows Fast Startup. If the error is not related to this event, try a clean installation of the driver with a preliminary complete removal in the Display Driver Uninstaller (the example is described here, it will work for ATI and not only for 10 — Clean installation of the NVIDIA driver in Windows 10).

In cases where an error occurs when installing Windows on a computer or laptop, try removing one of the memory sticks (with the computer turned off) and start the installation again. Perhaps this time it will be successful. For cases when a blue screen appears when trying to upgrade Windows to a new version (from Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10), a clean installation of the system from a disk or flash drive can help, see Installing Windows 10 from a flash drive.

For some motherboards (for example, MSIs are seen here), the error may appear when upgrading to a newer version of Windows. Try updating the BIOS from the official website of the manufacturer. See How to update BIOS.

Sometimes (if the error is caused by specific drivers in applications), clearing the temporary files folder can help fix the error C:\ Users\ Username\ AppData\ Local\ Temp\

a way to analyze the automatically generated memory dump and find out which driver caused the error is the free program WhoCrashed (official site — http://www.resplendence.com/whocrashed). After analysis, it will be possible to see the name of the driver in it in a form that is understandable to a novice user.

Then, using the device manager, you can try to roll back this driver to fix the error, or completely remove it and reinstall it from the official source.

Also on my site a separate solution for a separate manifestation of the problem is described — the blue screen of death BSOD nvlddmkm. sys, dxgkrnl.sys and dxgmss1.sys in Windows.

Another action that can be useful in many variations of the described Windows blue screen of death is the Windows RAM test. To get started — using the built-in RAM diagnostic utility, which can be found in Control Panel — Administrative Tools — Windows Memory Tester.

Fixes for the STOP 0x00000050 PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA error on the Microsoft website

There are also official hotfixes (fixes) for this error posted on the official Microsoft website for different versions of Windows. However, they are not universal, but apply to cases where the PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA error is caused by specific problems (explanations of these problems are provided on the corresponding pages).

To download the fix tool, click on the «Hotfix Download Available» button (next page may take a while), agree to the terms, download and run the fix.

Also on the official Microsoft website there are also their own descriptions for the blue screen error with the code 0x00000050 and some fixes:

the appearance of an error, which file reports a blue screen or programs for analyzing memory dumps (in addition to the mentioned WhoCrashed, the free program BlueScreenView can be useful here). You may be able to find a solution to the problem.

Thanks for the advice, I always read and use them. Just a couple of days ago, a friend had the same blue screen. I solved the problem using the memtest86+ 2.11 program. First he pulled out one bar and checked, then the other. There were 14 errors on one bar. Removed this bar and everything is OK. True memory is not enough now.

In general, although the error indicates problems with memory accesses, it rarely happens enough in the RAM itself, more often the drivers are the culprits.

Try to have time to perform a clean boot https://remontka.pro/clean-boot-windows/
or in safe mode (a quick way to get into it in 30 seconds is to press start — power button — hold Shift and press reboot. then diagnostics — boot options)
Some drivers are probably not working properly.

Hello! Please help me, because I have been suffering for three weeks with this error. Departs 3 minutes after launch. Swears on ntfs.sys and ntkrnlpa.exe. Doesn’t crash in safe mode. Swap turned off, checked the RAM and the screw with the surface, replaced the mother, memory and video, removed all unnecessary programs, turned off everything in startup. Presumably it appeared after Windows update 4014565 dated 04/14/17 but I can’t delete it in the safe — an error they say Some updates could not be deleted. And in the norms of loading, the process does not even have time to start. I tried dozens of articles about her, all in vain. Yes, and they haven’t answered comments there for a long time, only Dmitry often helps those who suffer. Thank you for your attention and hope for help!

Hello. It looks like a screw (or a file system on it), but you write that you checked. Any unusual backup services or the like are not worth it? Unfortunately, I can’t answer in more detail now (I’m on a trip almost without the Internet, so I would have googled on the topic myself).

Well, yes, the surface check did not see any errors. Can Victoria be allowed to torment him? Yes, there were no extra services there — these are village pensioners’ computer, there is only chrome and Skype, well, the grandson of the toys set. But I removed everything, checked for viruses with the last Baida. Now I’m downloading ERD, I’ll try to torment them more, in extreme cases I’ll rearrange Windows. And how would you google? I’m with the Internet. That’s just what he persuaded him to distribute to my computer from smart unlimited 8-10gbit

ntkrnlpa.exe + page fault in non paged area would google first of all, would pay attention to English-speaking forums.

Thank you very much! I will write about the result. Have a good trip and an easy road!

As a result, the screw with broken blocks was still to blame. Moreover, neither the Windows surface test, nor a couple of others found anything. I saw and cured only Paragon.

STOP 0x00000050 disappeared after removing one of the RAM sticks. apparently they were slightly different, so it gave out a blue screen

Good afternoon!
Help, please, rolled up updates and wib2k8 r2 stopped loading. Perhaps the driver has been updated, but it does not even allow you to enter safe mode, it crashes with a blue screen and swears at win32k.sys. I do a memtest’om check, but I still sin on the update. Can you give any advice?

and if you boot from the installation disk, then enter the recovery console and try recovery points (if any)?

Plus… I just googled in several places at once, that it is with error 50 with this file that deleting the font cache helps, namely files
c:\Windows\ System32\ FNTCACHE.DAT
c:\Windows\ ServiceProfiles\ LocalService\ AppData\ Local\ FontCache3.0.0.0.dat
c:\Windows\ ServiceProfiles\ LocalService\ AppData\ Local\ FontCache-System. dat

(you can also boot from a bootable flash drive, press Shift + F10, a command line will open and delete these files there or use some LiveCD)

I encountered the above problem for the first time on one of the working machines. The ntfs.sys file is listed in the error. It happened after an unscheduled «gen.cleaning» with a partial disassembly of the insides of the system unit. Immediately I began to sin on RAM (one DDR2 plank) — there was a lot of dust — maybe, I think, something got on the contact. Yes, personal experience suggested this is a likely cause. Repeated cleaning — did not help. I changed the slot, but not the channel — it did not help. Changed the RAM bar to exactly the same — did not help. He returned everything back, ceasing to sin on RAM. I changed the video card to the exact same one, cleaning the PCI-E slot and contacts, but it did not help. I repartitioned the HDD with full formatting using Windows — it did not help. I changed the HDD to another one, re-formatted the partitions with full formatting — it did not help. umm.
I plugged the RAM into another channel, I plugged the HDD into another SATA connector — I’m sitting waiting 🙂

I get this error when connecting to wi-fi, what should I do?

First, try installing the drivers on the Wi-Fi adapter (manually, from the official site, not in the device manager or through the driver pack). Also try temporarily disabling your antivirus, if any.

What to do if I can’t turn on the laptop, when I turn it on,
STOP gets out: 0x00000050 (0x0000000014EB2C60, 0x0000000000000001, 0xFFFFF80003E344F0, 0x0000000000000002).
Even safe mode doesn’t help. I remember that before the error, Windows 7 did the system setup.

Let’s say thanks to the small-soft ones for their correction, after which such an error. Moreover, this is not the first time I see this problem.
I have not yet found a solution, except for reinstallation, there was the last hope for a restore point, but it didn’t work out, an error occurred during the point rolling.

I see the comment you left on January 13th, which means that the update was tentatively completed on January 9-11, 2018. I started updating on Win 7 at 3 am, Windows is not a license, I downloaded it 2 years ago. I got this error, just like you. Do not enter safe mode, same error. In my case, it will not work to roll back, since I did not make backups.

Try any way you can to uninstall update KB4074598. Actual with a blue screen when there is almost no text, only the error number and parameters on 2 lines.

Crashes only when playing DotA pc Tested or worked for days in loads of SE no help

So maybe you have a problem with a copy of DotA?

Hello. I got this error all the time when opening a picture or turning on a video! And only then she began to constantly climb out, I no longer know how to get rid of her? I’ll write in more detail what is written there in the error .. Honestly, I’m not good at computers .. I removed the operative, changed places .. I didn’t even install any drivers through the site, I don’t know what he needs ..

Something with the video card or its drivers, judging by the description.

Hello! such a story happened. netbook 4good (everything is soldered inside), a small 10-inch device, the cheapest) I recently had to disassemble it to restore the screen attachment loops (torn off from the case). I had to disconnect the cable of the screen and the wires of the antenna of the network card. after the assembly began the following. wi-fi started dropping out. after updating the list of available networks. he disappeared altogether, as if he did not exist in principle.
tried to use the «reset network settings» function. there is something global going on with the restart of the computer. An error occurred during this diagnostic. in the end it came to that, I decided to restore the system. and crash again. eventually created a bootable flash drive to completely reinstall the system. everything goes smoothly until the reboot. after the reboot, the services start, the devices are prepared. and then a blue screen. the errors were different. for example: «driver power state failure», including this «NONPAGED_AREA». once on some error at the bottom it was written in small print «something there … rtwlan.sys».
installation occurs with preliminary formatting of the partition (where the system is installed). the rest (system and recovery partitions) remain.
seems to have told everything. If you can suggest me something, I will be very grateful.

Well, here are just such options for me:
1. something is not connected, especially regarding the wi-fi adapter
2. Wrong drivers for the wi-fi adapter or for the chipset and power management.
The first error indicates some problems with the power supply of the device, the second — about incorrect accesses to the memory of the wi-fi driver (rtwlan.sys)

thanks for the reply! only according to item 1. there was nothing special to connect. because it’s all on the same chart. only a cable from the monitor and wiring to the antenna (maybe because of it the drivers flew?) only if it is not completely stuck, which is unlikely.
a according to claim 2. the drivers themselves could not change, only if the files themselves were damaged. by the way, the last time it worked was in device manager. the bluetooth module was with an exclamation point.
in the end, what do you recommend? there is a bootable flash drive with the system, a folder with firewood and a crippled laptop) maybe try to install the system in a different way. I just can’t imagine the algorithm of actions yet.
thanks in advance!

First, download the wireless network driver (can be combined with the bluetooth driver) from the office. laptop site for your model (even if there is for a different version of win) and try to install.

has already been downloaded and is on the bootable flash drive. only how to install it if the system does not start? I tried to load it at the stage of choosing a partition where to install the OS. seems to have been installed. but to no avail. By the way, from all drivers from off. folders on this laptop, it was the driver for wlan that was installed. How to run it through the command line also did not find.

Found out that Yeset node was the culprit of my blue screen. I got an error while updating. I decided to completely demolish it, but I need to do it in safe mode, because I don’t have time in normal mode, the blue screen pops up. Please tell me how to solve this problem. Through the control panel does not allow.

Can’t get into safe mode too?

Hello, this is the second time I’m getting a blue screen with this error during the game, I can’t figure out what it is connected with and how to fix the problem.

Hello.
If a specific game, and not a licensed one, it is likely that this is a feature of the game itself (or its unlicensed version) and nothing much can be done about it.

Hello. I encountered this error, but the blue screen of death does not appear, but disappears (shuts down) from the explorer processes (explorer.exe), while there are no error notifications. The error window («Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown») appears when you switch to another account. With the help of BlueScreenView, I found out what was happening. Does anyone have any idea what is involved? P.S.: Windows 7, x32.

Hello. I also have 0x00000050 PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, first the indicator on the system unit is on without blinking, then nothing can be done, neither open nor go anywhere, everything freezes, and then (not immediately) after half an hour or a few hours a blue screen pops up with this error and the computer reboots. I checked with S.M.A.R.T. hard disk, there are 2 points lit yellow, a lot of errors. But is it really so suddenly that he broke down and all this is happening because of him? System restore cannot be done, an error pops up, but there are no viruses. Change hard drive? Thanks in advance

Have you tried using BlueScreenView or similar to check which module is causing the crash? In theory, maybe not a disk.

What OS version? 10? If it is possible to make a bootable flash drive with it somewhere (even if you don’t have 10), do it, boot from the flash drive, then select the language, and then click “System Restore” at the bottom left. Try using restore points there.

Acer laptop immediately falls into the blue screen of ntfs.sys when loading, removed the disk, connected it to the computer and also crashes into the blue screen, is this the end of the disk?

Not fact. Perhaps the problem is only with the system, not with the disk. Try reinstalling the OS (when you plug the drive back into the laptop).

Hello, I have a blue screen due to the files ntoskrnl.exe and win32k.sys, the OS was W7 start, and now XP, I do not have a boot disk with XP. How to solve a problem?

Checked for integrity using the command line, found the disc with XP, then killed the Windows key, So, while there is no blue screen, I also have a netbook and heats up quickly, I try not to overheat more, maybe there were problems because of this .. Thank you. I’ll try to check the hard suit, still high temperatures, I checked with the help of Aida …

I share:
— suffered for almost 3 hours. from about half past nine to 11.
situation:
Win7-pro_64x, RAM=8Ge as a server machine, it has a 4096MB Ram disk (to speed up calculations, or even not managed per shift) with saving-loading the image. the image is saved on the screw. a regular HDD, either a Samsung or a Seagate — it doesn’t matter.
in the morning include — BSOD! error 50. well, back and forth, booting from a flash drive, etc. etc. it turned out: the image of the RAM disk is not readable, the file is faulty! and the date of its creation is not yesterday, damn it, but the day before yesterday! how!
Well, what can I say? turned off the machine before the creation-burning of the RAM disk image was completed. well, it’s clear, I need to go home, there are children, washing, cooking, washing dishes, sweeping, wiping the floors, laying down, laying down … RAM disk, unmounted the image, created an empty one in a new way, recorded a backup copy from a USB flash drive … now I need to figure it out in the settings in a new way, but I already forgot how I did (!) Saving-mounting the disk image and truncated.

happiness-health to all kind people and good luck.
u-da-chi.

What to do if stop error: 0x00000050. Appears immediately when windows 7 is loaded. There is no way to perform actions from the desktop. The blue screen appears after installing some windows 7 updates. Help me solve the problem, I’m tired of reinstalling. Some programs do not work without the latest OS updates. dilemma).

How does safe mode behave? It is possible that it will work. Most likely in some driver that comes with the update, the problem.

Tell me what to do? I don’t have a recovery. Windows is loading.

Sounds like a problem with the AMD chipset driver. Try downloading and installing from the official website of the motherboard (if it’s a PC) or laptop (if it’s a laptop).

I was sitting with this blue screen for 3 hours. Windows just didn’t want to boot. I went into safe mode with network driver support, started to look what was wrong. I checked the RAM, downloaded blueScreenView, downloaded Registry Repair. It turned out that everything crashes because of the ntoskrnl.exe file. I learned everything about this file, but nothing helped, I wanted to demolish Windows. Then he remembered that he recently turned on the isolation of the core, there was nothing to do, there were no more options left. You can’t just turn it off from safe mode, and I remembered that there is a magic command line. I googled the command to disable kernel isolation, entered it, restarted the computer. The screens flickered and everything worked. Maybe I’m special, but this helped me. In short, do not climb and poke at something you do not know.

They write that this driver is a component of the Aladdin HASP software (I don’t know what it is).
On a blue screen, you are not prompted to enter advanced options? If there is such an opportunity, then there is also the ability to use the restore point and safe mode (In the boot options).

Hello, help with the iastore.sys error. I tried to boot in normal mode, it doesn’t work — endless loading or a blue screen, and in safe mode I can’t check the drivers (

Hello.
Are there no easy restore points? If the problem has recently appeared.

Help, I can’t do anything about this error. It doesn’t enter safe mode, I try to disable all processes, I don’t have time, I tested it from another disk and another Windows — the disk is normal. How to find out what the problem is. The conditions are as follows: the computer has 2 hard drives. On one stands one Winda, which works, on the second, another one that has fallen. Can I repair another from one Windows? Obviously, the problems are not in the hardware (I scanned the second disk, everything is fine) How can I find out with the help of another Windows that I need to press quickly in 30 seconds to fix the problem?

Hello.
If not in hardware, then either in drivers or in software (such as antiviruses, etc.
